New Show



I have a show at UW-Rock County up now until mid-March.
I have around 30 paintings and an installation of all the drawings of fish I have kept in the last year. I think it is cool to see all of them together.

Winter-Vernon County


I liked the stark red against the high key background.
The Packers have made February far more tolerable!

Painting Streak






I had a goal of doing 100 paintings in 30 days. I ended up doing 105 paintings in 37 consecutive days.
I had to stop when I was painting the last one, which is posted last, of Lake Michigan. I drove through a large snow drift and it knocked my serpantine belt off. Then everybody got snowed in.
I generally tried to stay close and painted places that I had emotional attachments to.
These are some of the paintings.

I guess you get the idea. Working to a goal is always a good idea.
I was forced out of my conmort zone and pushed to my limits.
I am most happy when I am outside observing on a daily basis.
No simulacrum needed thank you.
